Marty--hope your vacation went well. It took much longer than I expected to procure a copy of your work but it was worth it. Just finished reading and please just accept my appreciation for your efforts. In regards my enquiry regarding Soviet shipments to China I have come across some data and found your comments on the growth of the Soviet fleet in the 1930's very thoughtful. Picked up a volume on seaplanes ( in Spanish) during the Civil War and am messing around waiting for a Spanish language volume on the naval war. A couple more years of digging may answer my original question regarding shipments from Russia to China. Stay well--Jerry Asher

Yes, I saw the notice back in April. Boris and I had been discussing a potential collaborative project in the day just before he left us. He was extremely generous and helpful in my efforts to procure material from the Soviet-era days on merchant shipping. Always willing to help and always curious.

We will miss him. It is a big loss for all those interesting in documenting maritime history.

Four-masted-bark "Tovarishch" was sunk by the Germans in the port of Mariupol during the retreat in autumn 1943.

Hello BIGpanzer and the other,

Does anyone know what exactly MAS - boats the "Mikoyan" have attacked? In my very limited resources I can not find it. Thank you in advance for a possible response.

Mischa

GER: Weiß vielleicht jemand, welche genau MAS - Boote die "Mikojan" angegriffen haben? In meinen sehr begrenzten Quellen kann ich es nicht finden. Danke im Voraus für eine eventuelle Antwort.

It has much of the information you seek.

I don't have a copy of the mentioned book.
Where can I find this book against which price? I presume its written in Cyrillic ?
It will be hard for me to read and understand, but it can be helpfull.

Jos,

The book has an appendix containing the names, ranks and birthdates of all Soviet merchant fleet sailors killed in the Pacific Theatre. Yes, it is in Cyrillic. I acquired mine from a Russian bookseller.

However, you are in luck. The book is now online. Here is the link to the Appendix: http://militera.lib.ru/h/rudnev_ga/04.html

I tried some crews and compared it with my data. I looks very good.

Thanks a lott

I am looking for information about transportation of steam locomotives to Russia in 1921 -1923, and specifically about Krylov's contribution to this. I saw a post "I have an English translation of Krylov's article about the shipments in 1921/22 if that is helpful." I will appreciate very much if you can point me to this article or any other materials in English about this effort.
